Definitely Changing

Last week I did two things that I never would’ve done in the past, and liked it.

I made grilled salmon and asparagus for dinner one night, oh and rice that didn’t finish in time this particularly rushed evening. Since I didn’t need/want it that was fine with me.
I also chose to make turkey burgers for my husband to grill for me when we had a barbecue with friends on Saturday. He was grilling hot dogs and hamburgers for everyone else. And I chose to have it on a 100% whole wheat bun with lettuce, tomato, ketchup and mustard, with only one deviled egg (that I made with half lite mayo and half regular) and nothing else to eat.
The best part?
I was totally happy with my choices. I did not feel like I was depriving myself. Both of those never-would’ve-eaten-in-the-past meals were tasty and enjoyable for me.
Yes, I also made chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and fresh green beans one night, but I made room for my small portion in my calorie budget for that day. So, even that decision was fine and I was happy with my choice.
Yes, I’m definitely changing and so very grateful for it!

    I recently tried grilled asparagus — it was very good. For years I didn't like asparagus because I had only tried canned.
